COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship, an agressivly hopped India Pale Ale. Piney, grapefruit flavor with a big nose.

An IPA brewed with pale malts, generous amounts of crystal malts and an abundance of whole hops. The hops are showcased through a hop back process, which along with dry hopping, produces a piney, grapefruit and floral aroma and helps contribute to a crisp, dry finish.
